Pink Floyd - The Story of Wish You Were Here

.
This documentary features commentary from Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and even a few vintage clips from the late Rick Wright as it tells the story of the making of 1975's Wish You Were Here. The album's overall theme of absence grew out of Water's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," the offering's centerpiece that was inspired by what happened to Floyd founding member and acid casualty, the late Syd Barrett. Although recently made the film is not presented in the style of most "the making of" videos where actual film from recording sessions is used; that wasn't going on in 1975. But the band's principals, along with a few relevant persons who were there, lay out an honest and informative narrative of how the band almost broke up as they tried to get out of the funk they were in as they tried to follow-up the massively successful Dark Side of the Moon. Along the way you'll pick up some trivia relating to the album like how Roy Harper sang the lead vocal on "Have a Cigar," not Roger Waters, and yes, the guy in the album's cover photo really was set on fire to get the shot.
